Ian Bell scored a vital century for Warwickshire

If Ed Joyce’s century in the context of a 20-wicket opening day was remarkable, then it was trumped yesterday by Ian Bell, whose 46th first-class hundred has so transformed this match that Sussex, who appeared at one stage almost to be nailed-on winners inside two days, could conceivably find themselves beaten in three.

Sussex captain Ed Joyce scored a composed century on a day dominated by bowlers

Look out: Jonathan Trott will be in Sussex’s sights after Ashes problems

Whoever you bowl against in Championship cricket you will try to target their best players because if you can put scars on them along the way you know it will help your team's cause. Naturally, in the Warwickshire game this week, one guy we will be targeting is Jonathan Trott. We would do that anyway, whatever the circumstances. Along with Ian Bell, he is one of their best batsmen.
